There is no pencil signature on the piece like most examples of his works that we have seen. As for condition there is a 3/8ths of an inch high by 4 1/2 inches across line of old glue stain visible on the front of the woodblock from where it was glued down to a piece of old cardboard many years ago. Over the past 80 + years the glue discolored and started to show through on the front. We don't know if this piece had margins or not when it was printed. We found a couple of framed examples of this print unexamined out of the frame so we are not sure if the work has been trimmed down or not.
The colors are still very bright on the work considering its age and being backed by cardboard by many years. The paper is nice and pliable and not brittle. Some of them can be quite valuable. This work has a great Arts and Crafts look to it.If you collected fine Japanese woodblocks, this would make a nice addition to your collection.
